I wanted to add. Monday of the conforence. Jen and I were in a group activity together along with all the people from fox valley area? Our group when we branched off talked about the importants to us. One thing we came up with is this number oen important thing to us was that Transportation/ Accessibity. Number two live life without silly rules(have our wants reconized.) Number three Jobs (having jobs availble). Number four Health( specifically dental care and hopsital care, and doctor care) and insurance are all not enough. Our group used what is called the umberalla approach which I had never done before or even hear of. At the top would be the transportation/ acessibility to the left of the handle no silly rules/ live how we want to the right of the handle jobs and the at the bottom health and fitness.
